Role Outline/Responsibilities:

Client Overview:

Sizewell C (SZC) will be a next-of-a-kind nuclear power plant in Suffolk, England using the same technology and design as the Hinkley Point C (HPC) nuclear power plant under construction in Somerset.

The SZC Project is engineering-led in order to secure SZC's design replication strategy and a large part of the supply chain is being replicated from HPC.

The construction contracts are categorised by Programme and are broadly: Equipment, Conventional Island, Nuclear Island, MEH, Main Civil Works and Enabling Works.

Role Overview:

The SZC Project success will be linked to our capability to replicate HPC design to SZC site. This replication is challenged by the site specificities and the impact it may have on the design of the EPR UK. The definition of the changes, the processes to develop and implement the changes and the implementation of the change compare to HPC is a key activity to secure the replication and develop the business case of SZC project.

The No Change Committee manages the permanent design configuration. This role is to complete these activities by managing the Site Configuration and Construction Sequence committee. The committee is in charge of supporting any decision needed to manage Site configuration and construction sequence, space allocation, interfaces with the permanent site design. The objective must be to replicate HPC design as much as possible and limit the impact on construction activities.

The Configuration Engineer will define all processes, procedures, tools, standards that would be necessary to manage and efficiently developed the SCSC and the link with RC1 configuration. Additional support are needed in order to secure replication strategy of the supply chain and put in place the required processes to ensure that the procurement sequence is managed through an appropriate configuration.

In top of this activity, there is a need to manage the main evolution of input for the supply as the codes and standards and define a strategy and be in position to measure the replication of the list of equipment from HPC to SZC to a low level.

Principal Responsibilities:
• Act as the technical point of contact for the NI / CI-BOP and CW programmes with regards to all configuration management topics within their scope interfaced with the management of supply chain.
• Ensure that the main partners configuration strategy follow SZC guidance.
• Support the programme to put in place the PCR process and manage interface between PCR process and configuration management.
• Coordinate codes and standards replication strategy.
• Coordinate update of the procurement LDA.
• Develop a strategy to manage replication of equipment list from HPC to SZC.


The role does not have any direct reports or budget control.
